A former Mrs. Orange County has been accused of making and distributing child pornography involving a 4-year-old relative. Meghan Breanna Alt, a 25-year-old woman residing in Irvine, was arrested yesterday in San Diego on suspicion of using a 4-year-old relative to make child pornography, the O.C. Register reports. Investigators say Alt confessed to making the illicit materials and selling them to a Marine stationed nearby for money and gifts, and that Alt advertised sex for money via Craigslist. At least once, one of these encounters happened while her children were around, according to O.C. Sheriff's Department Lt. Jeff Hallock.

Alt will next appear in court on Friday and is currently being held on a $100,000 bail.

She was crowned Mrs. Orange County in 2014 and also competed in the Mrs. California 2014 pageant. Alt's husband is now caring for their children, and police do not think he was aware of the pornography.

Police say that Alt volunteered at the Chuch of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in San Clemente and Irvine, where she would have had contact with children.
